1971 Profile: Edgar Chandler

Middle Linebacker
No. 52
Georgia
"The middle linebacking job was turned over to Edgar Chandler last year, and his outstanding play prompted coach Rauch to think of him as a 'potential longtime fixture.' Chandler, now entering his fourth year with Buffalo (he was a fourth round draft choice in '68), has good speed and is a tough tackler. Last season Ed made off with his very first interception- including high school and college- and ran it back 59 yards for a touchdown.
An All-America tackle at Georgia, the 6-3, 235-pounder put in most of his rookie time on the special teams and then replaced the injured Paul Guidry at left linebacker midway through the '69 season."

-Brenda Zanger, Pro Football 1971
